Extra Special Snail Mail with basic invite


Thank you to my friends at BasicInvite for sponsoring this post!


I know 2020 has been hard for everyone in different ways, and as an extrovert obsessed with entertaining, seeing friends and family and a good theme party, it's been extra dreary to not have much to look forward to. When BasicInvite reached out to me to share more about their custom stationery and invites, it truly fell at the perfect time! I had finally accepted that I could, with a little creativity, still celebrate with friends from a distance and that planning for the future (wait til you see their 2021 New Years cards!) could be just as special as a party the next month.


When I first got to their site, I was tickled by all of the specific, organized categories. We are planning a little getaway to the mountains for a friend's birthday, and to have the ability to sort by occasion, age and theme was such a time saver! We decided to call it her AirBnBirthday, and they had the perfect campfire themed layout for the invites.

Once I had landed on my design of choice, I got to totally customize the sample from font to color to placement. I order a LOT of stationery, and normally the samples just come as-is so that was really exciting to get to see our names and dates in print! They have pretty much any color imaginable (180 to choose from!), and include options for gold, silver and rose gold foil as well.


After knocking out that design, I decided a little future dreaming was in order. I decided to order one of their champagne birthday invites so I could see the design in person, and they did not disappoint. I loved that you could swap the text and use it for a birthday, celebration, or even a baby shower (mom-osas anyone?!) They had the cutest Friendsgiving invitations that I made my own, and I couldn't resist mocking up a 2021 New Years card as well. Hurry along now, 2020!


In addition to all of their invitations, they have cards for pretty much every other occasion, including thank you cards! Thank you notes are HUGE in my family, and I loved the idea that they coordinated with each birthday party invitation so you could keep the theme alive.


The last feature that I can't wait to use is their address capturing tool. I can see this coming in so handy for my real estate business, but also for my friends around the country who move from year to year. You can share a link on social media and gather your friends' addresses right into their site! As soon as they're in your account, they offer free address printing which is super rare. This would have saved me DAYS in the wedding planning process, y'all!


Between their easy-to-use site, endless custom options and awesome customer service, the process was a breeze. Their paper quality and presentation were the cherry on top, and I can't wait to place my first post-quarantine party order!


As a little bonus, if you do have something fun coming up they're offering 15% off using code 15FF51. Happy entertaining!
